Simple, elegant, and easy to use – three qualities we love in design – and it’s great for people who want to quench their thirst on the go, even if all that is available is a questionable water source. Designed by Gretha Oost, Paul Charlwood & Andrew Howley.

There’s also an extension to the idea in that you take your plant out every time you drive, sorta like walking your dog. Designed by Slava Saakyan.

Eco & Ego Car

98. Have A Different Car Everyday
The MOY Concept car was made for a generation used to using media to express themselves.

It also provides a database to hold all medical records for the entire family and reminds you of appointments and times that you have to take pills.
